  1. I’m so diappointed in Wayward Pines season 2, they basically just retold season 1(which stand-alone was a 8.5/9 out of 10 mini-series), and started some new-details, they never actually deepened. They spend the entire season trying to humanize Jason, when reality is, you can’t, so why bother.

    It should’ve stayed a 1-season mini-series, because these 10 episodes could’ve been an evolution, about how the resitance recovered, about how the Abbies might have offered peace(since they are smarter than us), but no, it was a non-story season. :(

      Yeah, and they just went and killed off everyone from last season. Really went all Under the Dome syndrome. When a show is said to have a finite run, they should leave it at finite and not milk it.

    Somehow, I just couldn’t get into Wayward Pines this year.

    • jp says:

      I agree on Pines. I have watched it but it seemed to go nowhere. They brought in new people who didn’t add a whole lot.

      • Goshen says:

        Prediction from a Season 1 viewer: Wayward Pines, which had a proper and reasonably satisfying SERIES finale last year, will end tonight with a cliffhanger.

    Master Chef
    Mr. Robot

    Big Brother, America’s Got Talent, MasterChef, Wayward Pines, American Gothic

  7. KLS says:

    I hope Wayward Pines doesn’t end with a cliff hanger. I would love for them to come together and fight/work with the abbies. Running away and hiding (beng frozen) is my least favorite option. I don’t think there should be a season 3.
